Yes, for most devices it's safe to remove the ferrite bead. If signaling noise became a problem you could always just reinstall it with some tape (or ones like it). But it's unlikely to be much of...

Then use the MS adapter. Bit of overkill as you don't need length, but the adapter will power the Kinect and then you'd just run USB3 back through the conduit. There'd have to be room at the TV to...

NO. Not unless you're already skilled at patching high-speed cables. And if you were that skilled you'd already know it's a bad idea. High speed stuff like this depends a lot more on the RF...

Yeah, asshats are never a good thing. I hate the time wasted just to get hooked up with a bunch of jerks. But that's a problem in the real world too. I find if the group can't adjust their...

Meh, it's not quick or easy unless you keep a PC with keyboard nearby. From a tablet or phone (via browser) it's a bit tedious. It's do-able, of course, but seems more work than ought to be...

I very much disliked using them before they got buffed a few weeks ago. Now they absolutely devastate in PvE (where they were utterly useless before). Some are more versatile than others. Void...

Agreed on many counts. If we weren't sure about cryptarchs being insufferable assh0les, well, we are now. The new guy is even more annoying, if such a thing is possible.

You can drop it, but then you're at risk of some random grabbing it and wasting the ammo. I generally find it's best to equip an arc shotgun and use that on the captains in the 3rd and later waves. ...

Nothing truly replaces hard buttons for 'blind use'. I still keep RF remotes in use for the kind of fast-forwarding, volume or other kinds of lazy uses. Tablets and the like are best suited for...

I edited it to expand the range from 100, as I accidentally tripped over that when I ran the daily. So be warned to give yourself some room. FWC tripped and gave me a crappy helmet.

Yeah, it's alright, but I still prefer scout rifles. With the Suros I'm seeing much longer TTK (time to kill) vs using my MIDA. With scouts it's pick-pop-pick-pop headshots, one after the other. ...
